It looks like Seattle Seahawks’ wide receiver Percy Harvin will be back on the field when the Seahawks host the New Orleans Saints in Saturday’s NFC divisional playoff game.
Harvin has appeared in just one game for the Seahawks this season, a 41-20 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on November 17. He caught one pass for 17 yards, but had a setback with his hip and has not played since.
Harvin had surgery to repair a torn labrum on August 1.
Seahawks’ quarterback Russell Wilson told reporters Harvin looks “unbelievable so far” and on Thursday, Harvin seemingly confirmed that news.
“I’m feeling great,” Harvin told Terry Blount of ESPN.com after Thursday’s practice. “I didn’t have any setbacks. These practices have been very good. I’m really confident about this game.”
Harvin is concerned he could face another setback, but won’t let that bother him.
“It goes through my mind,” Harvin said. “But I’m just gonna cut it loose. I made all the cuts in practice that I possibly could do in the game. I felt no limitations and no swelling came back. I’m gonna go out there and give it all I have.”
The Seahawks and Saints will kickoff from Century Link field in Seattle, Washington at 4:35 pm EST Saturday and the game is on Fox.
